Children’s views sought on UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill
Date: 12th October 2020
The Equalities and Human Rights Committee has launched a child friendly version of the consultation on the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill. The children’s version is accompanied by resources and information, including a facilitator pack to help adults planning engagement activities with children around the Bill.
The resources include:
- A leaflet for children on how to submit their views
- An easy read booklet
- A facilitators pack for adults working with children
- An additional PowerPoint presentation for schools
Children and organisations who help to gather children’s views will have until 20th November 2020 to send the Committee their views – they can do so in any language and in a range of formats such as drawings and photos as well as in writing. Gaelic versions of the above resources are forthcoming.
- Children's views can be submitted here.
The written call for views (aimed at adults, young people and organisations) will close later this week. The deadline for responses is 5:00pm on Friday 16th October 2020.
